Great storytelling

To help her parents survive a big corporate take-over of their home and business, Alaine needs a lawyer to represent her parents in court. However, Forbes is the only lawyer who will take her case, which is against his parents who own the corporation that's attempting the take-over. The relationship that builds between Alaine and Forbes is full of strife. Can they survive among the discord between their families? An impeccably written story by a great storyteller. The plot moves smoothly from scene to scene with no slow parts to struggle through.

Thoroughly enjoyed this book!

Forbes Guidry is well-known around town, both from family ties and the name he has created for himself as one of Bonneterre's best lawyers. He also happens to be one of the Bonneterre's most eligible bachelors. Love literally walks into Forbes one evening in the form of Alaine Delacroix, a local tv news reporter. Before their relationship has a chance to develop, Alaine finds herself at odds with Forbes ~ his family owns a corporation that is threatening to demolish the community she grew up in, one where her family still resides and works. Alaine attempts to help her family by getting a pro bono lawyer ~ Forbes Guidry. Forbes is put in a difficult position. He stands the chance of losing things that are precious to him ~ his lifelong ties with his family and his newly developed feelings for Alaine. Will God intervene and show him a way to keep both? My Thoughts From start to finish I thoroughly enjoyed this book ~ I even stayed up far too late in an attempt to read it in just one night. Dacus has created some wonderful characters that pull you into the story ~ from the immediate family members to the diverse ethnic community that is threatened with demolition. Truthfully, I'm a little saddened that it is the last book in the series, because there are other family members that I would enjoy reading more about! A Case for Love is the third book in the Brides of Bonneterre series by Kaye Dacus, following Stand-in Groom and Menu for Romance. If you enjoy historical fiction, Kaye also has another wonderful series set in the early 1800's ~ the Ransome Trilogy. The first book in that series, Ransome's Honor is currently available and the second Ransome's Crossing ~ I loved the first book so much I've already pre-ordered the second! Be sure to visit Kaye's website where she shares writing tips and insights. Her site is one that I visit almost daily and really enjoy the various series that she has provided.

A wonderful Christian romantic fiction read

First of all, I would like to extend a heartfelt "Thank you" to Kaye Dacus and her publisher for sending me a copy of "A Case For Love" to review for them. I have always been grateful for this generosity, and I am trying to improve at being consistent in taking the time to thank these wonderfully giving individuals in a public forum. I really appreciate your time, effort and expense in making a reviewer copy available to me. Kaye Dacus has captured my heart once more in her third tale of Bonneterre and the Guidry family. In "A Case For Love", it's Forbes Guidry's turn at romance. The confirmed bachelor, successful lawyer, and anchor of the Guidry siblings in taking a pro bono case that has the potential to change his life forever. He is smitten with Alaine Delacroix, the beautiful hostess of a local news magazine. But she won't give him the time of day! Now they're forming an allegiance as attorney and client - against Forbes' parents! Not the greatest way to begin a romance! But this story does make for a great novel! Although I've been invested in the characters since book 2 - yes, I've read them out of order - this book was easy to get into. It could certainly be read and enjoyed without having read the other books. And, even though it's a bit predictable overall, Dacus has a gift with weaving a story that really entertains and brings a sign or two while you read her work. And it's wonderfully refreshing to have the conflict in the romance NOT be between the couple, separating them for a time. This is a terrific book!

Could hardly put it down!

Wonderful book! I have enjoyed every book in this series and can only say "please write more!" Forbes is probably my favorite hero among the three books, even though I love all three of the men. One can really tell that Kaye Dacus has done research into the workings of a law office and court; television reporting and the goings on behind the scenes of the running of the television station. The characters are so real and so much like friends that I would like to meet. I don't want to part with them! If you are looking for real people with real situations; some problems(not large hang-ups);beautiful spine-tingling-bring-a-smile-on-your-face-and-leave-it-there-for-the-next-two-days clean romance then this series is for you!

Great read

I have read all of the Brides of Bonneterre books and I have to say this is my favorite so far. The author does an excellent job of creating the characters so that you feel like you know them. I greatly enjoy the family as a whole and the fact that you stay in contact with the characters from the previous books. It is a light and enjoyable read while also dealing with real issues in the life of a Christian. I hope she is planning to continue the series with the rest of the siblings that are yet unmatched. I didn't want to put the book down and definitely recommend it. If you haven't read the other two you will want to start with Stand in Groom, then read Menu for Romance before A Case for Love.
